Gregoire Akcelrod, the agent of Aurelien Tchouameni opens up on discovering the Tottenham Hotspur target as a teenager

In conversation with Marca (h/t Express), Gregoire Akcelord described his elation at discovering AS Monaco star and Tottenham Hotspur target Aurelien Tchouameni as a young teenager.

The 21-year-old French international has been making waves throughout footballing clubs in Europe. Tottenham Hotspur is one of the clubs that are vying for the services of the talented youngster. He has been a great asset for the Ligue 1 club AS Monaco and a resolute presence at the back.

Tchouameni has already played 60 matches for the French club at such a young age whilst scoring 5 goals and providing 4 assists across all competitions so far. It is believed that fellow Premier League rivals Manchester United and Liverpool are also in the race to sign the French International. Spanish against Barcelona and Real Madrid were also previously linked to the 21-year-old midfielder.

Akcelord spoke up about how he felt an immense amount of joy when he met the 15-year-old Tchouameni for the first time. His hopes have so far borne fruit as Tchouameni continues to make a name for himself with both club and country.

“In the summer of 2015, when he was 15 years old, a boy I represent tells me that his roommate wanted to see me and to represent him. I spoke to him, his name was Aurélien and he dazzled me with his maturity.”

The youngster has many suitors as of now and it is believed that the French club have slapped a £34million price tag on him. The 21-year-old could be a great long-term investment to Spurs and help build some stability in the middle of the pitch.

Akcelrod also went on to compare the youngster to Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba. While the agent’s comparison had more to do with looks, there is no reason why both players could be compared in terms of ability soon.

“‘This boy looks like Pogba’ , I thought of the one with the pink boots. When the training was over I went to say goodbye to him and, to my surprise, he was the owner of those pink boots. ’I won the lottery!’ I thought.”

Any move for Tchouameni right now can only be considered tentative but the AS Monaco midfielder could be a great addition to Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad. The youngster could have a bright future and the agent would have a big part in determining his career graph. Whether Spurs too will end up winning the lottery remains to be seen.
